Governor to Tour Chester Community Charter School

Representatives of media outlets are invited to visit the East Campus Gymnasium of Chester Community Charter School (http://www.chestercommunitycharter.org), at 302 East 5th Street, here, on Friday, April 29, 2011, from 2:45pm to 3:45 pm, as Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett visits the school as part of his administration’s ongoing review of the effectiveness of public and charter schools across the Commonwealth.

Chester Community Charter School (CCCS), with nearly 2700 students currently enrolled, and hundreds of additional young people on its waiting list, is the largest K-8 charter school in Pennsylvania. The school’s student PSSA scores consistently rank among the highest in the Greater Philadelphia area, and CCCS has achieved AYP (Adequate Yearly Progress) in the assessments done by the State’s Department of Education, in each of the past two years.

The Governor’s visit will include an opportunity for him to meet with CCCS students, faculty members and administrators and to take a tour of the school’s East Campus.
